With the HI_GAIN, you can enter a world of sharp corners, rusty springs, and broken floorboards.
E n t e r a w o r l d o f t r a s h .
A world of scraping hi-hats, smashed up kicks, beautiful clipped white noise, broken file cabinets, disused railway cars, and super acidic bass lines.
Perfect for techno, for noise, for some punch, or for just plain experimenting, the HI_GAIN is not for those seeking a clean, precise VCA, or for those on a quest for ultra-linear gain stages. In fact, if you need nice and clean, we recommend you stay away.
The HI_GAIN was designed to create noise, to pump up the hiss, to boost asymmetrical happiness and to bring some color to your Eurorack system. Like other Snazzy FX modules, the HI_GAIN encourages play with capital P. Cross couple/feedback/mix outputs together, stick some CVs in, see what happens. Repeat.
Transistor based, voltage controlled gain stages that are super colorful and full of personality
Normalized inputs, allowing for instant processing through all three gain stages
Sum output allows the user to mix all three stages of saturation together
Sum output can be mixed in a mixer together with individual outputs for instant boosting and cancellation
Stages 1 and 2 work as aggressive VCAs with very unique tonality
Stage 3 is a CV controlled gain stage which controls DC bias in the summer output
Each stage works well on its own, but the real magic begins when you use the HI_GAIN as a system
Power consumption: 15mA
